1935 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 1A 9529 1935 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 1A 9529 Mark Schrad's 1935 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2021-03-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1935 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 1A 9529 I bought this burgundy 1935 Corona Sterling "flat top" in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in April of 2017. It is gorgeous, though the platen was rock hard and there was no case to it. Oh! And there was a persistent problem with an upside-down letter O, which was only remedied years later when I simply discovered that the slug was placed upside-down on the type arm, and was still loose and could easily be flipped.
